Captain WIP #1

Having come off the HQ building challenge, I've jumped into starting on my 5th Co. captain - first time working on gold armour and seems to be coming up well.

B&C Speed Builds - HQs: Captain & Lieutenants

I've been mulling over which bits would eventually make up my captain, and generally putting off actually doing it by working on more troops... The B&C Blood & Zeal challenge has been a good excuse to just commit and just start my HQs. Captain & 2 lieutenants got a good leg up as a result...

Dark Imperium: Chaos WIP #2 (Poxwalkers)

I think I have a new found love for washes. Not only are they ridiculously quick to add some colour, but they add highlight and shade in one step. Plus a few colours together gets all sorts of interesting effects. 

26 Poxwalkers got to be the test subjects for batch painting, and I kept semi-faithful to the approach that our-lord-Duncan outlines on Warhammer TV.

However, that doesn't mean I have to hold off on the Chaos side...

Miniature Scenery: City Levels construction Part 1

About 3 years ago I got hold of a set of out of production City Battlegrounds from Miniature Scenery, which make for excellent 40k style road/city tiles that can be arranged in any combination of layouts. I posted a bunch of pics of these painted quite some time ago here.

Since I last posted about these in May, the next wave of construction is overdue...

Death Company Dreadnought: Construction & magnetising

To add to the ranks of the Death Company, I've also wanted to add a dreadnought while I paint my guys in black. The core sarcophagus though I've wanted to replace as I have some plans to chop up the one that comes in the BA kit...
